As I queued at the BA check-in for my flight to Delhi, I was handed my boarding pass. To my astonishment, I suddenly realised I had been upgraded to first class! I can only imagine that my set of Globetrotter luggage had swayed it or perhaps it was my immaculately cut Hackett men's blazer? Either way, I was thrilled to say the least.
As someone who is not partial to long haul flights, I was now actually looking forward to my ten hour trip, safe in the knowledge that I would be pampered all the way - and I wasn't disappointed.
I was heading to Delhi for the opening of the first Hackett shop in India in The Collective, a recently opened shopping mall that contains luxury brands from all over world, so we would be in good company.
